Default Any one else feel like a "One Trick Pony"

I have been uploading a lot of cards to my Gallery lately. Most of my cards have the images fussy cut over a background I have made. Starting to feel like I only make one type of card. Anyone else feel like they always make the same card using different images?

Have you considered participating in the daily challenges on SCS? My craft goal for 2017 is to participate in at least three SCS challenges each week in the hopes that I will use up some of my supplies and stretch my creativity. This week I participated in four challenges and made 4 very different cards. This might be what you need to expand your stamping style.

I just had time to take a quick peek in your gallery, and I love your cards. They don't look at all "alike". I think if you find something that works for you, and you end up with cards as cute as yours, I wouldn't change a thing.

I totally agree with Pam. Your cards are so cute, and totally don't all look the same. In fact, it looks as if you really customize the images to fit the recipient - very cool. There's nothing wrong with wanting to try new techniques, but there's also nothing wrong with finding your niche and staying with it.

I do! That is why I love challenges and CASEing - both get me to try something different.

I would be happy even to have had ONE trick this past year! My new "trick" is going to be to make time to create ANYTHING! You're doing just fine - carry on with the cuteness!

I feel that way a lot, especially if my mojo is in high gear and I can't seem to stop making cards! That hasn't been an issue lately, I haven't had the time to make many cards, hopefully that will change this weekend! I agree with what everyone has said, they don't look at all alike to me, you have great stamps and are very talented!

Yes! And it is my idea of Hades. I case, go to Youtube and look at art and craft books in my library --ones not specifically about card making. If I can lose myself in color combinations or techniques, I can usually get out of the rut, but usually not fast enough!
